The Problem

If untreated, Rosacea can progress to persistent redness and tiny blood vessels in the cheeks, nose, chin and forehead can become more prominent. Patients with pimples, especially older men, may then develop Rhinophyma, which is severe enlargement of the nose.

Rosacea is a common, yet uncomfortable skin condition that affects thousands of people in the UK. The most common symptoms are redness, flushing and burning of the skin across the cheeks, nose and chin. You may also notice blood vessels becoming more visible in those areas. Although the condition does not affect the physical health, it can often make sufferers extremely self-conscious.

If untreated, Rosacea can progress to persistent redness and tiny blood vessels in the cheeks, nose, chin and forehead can become more prominent. Patients with pimples, especially older men, may then develop Rhinophyma, which is severe enlargement of the nose.

Women are more likely to have rosacea then men and it usually develops between the ages of 30-50 but it is not uncommon to notice the first signs in your early 20s. Unfortunately there is no cure for rosacea but here at The Private Clinic we have a variety of treatments that have been proven to reduce the signs of rosacea.

The Problem

If untreated, Rosacea can progress to persistent redness and tiny blood vessels in the cheeks, nose, chin and forehead can become more prominent. Patients with pimples, especially older men, may then develop Rhinophyma, which is severe enlargement of the nose.

Intense Pulsed Light Treatment

Here at The Private Clinic, we have a fast, effective and safe treatment for Rosacea – Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). IPL is a non-invasive treatment that reduces redness on the face and neck area. It emits light which is absorbed by the affected skin area, destroying the visible blood vessels, which are then reabsorbed into the body following the treatment. IPL is suitable for most skin types and colours, producing effective results for both men and women. If you are on any medication for Rosacea, please mention this to the medical professional during your consultation.

IPL Vascular Laser for rosacea is available in London Harley Street.

The Results

The colour and overall texture of the skin is improved and redness is significantly reduced. Blood vessels will disappear following the IPL treatment.

With LED phototherapy the results are progressive and improvement to your skin will continue even after the treatment has stopped. Regular treatments will achieve the best results and maintenance treatments may also be recommended.


None, you can get back to your normal activities straight away after IPL treatment.

There is no downtime associated with LED Phototherapy but it is recommend you use sun protection and avoid extreme temperatures for 12 hours after treatment.


What do the treatments involve?

IPL is a system of pulsed light and lasers that penetrates the skin to improve tone and texture. No gels or topical anaesthetics are required and the procedure can be carried out on the face, chest, arms and hands. Here at The Private Clinic, we offer the very latest IPL technology on the market, known as Limelight. This type of laser skin treatment is both quicker and more effective than older IPL technologies.

LED Photherapy uses different coloured wavelengths to penetrate the skin stimulating your skin cells to produce more energy and work more effectively to heal and repair the skin.

Do the treatments hurt?

IPL and LED Therapy are not painful treatments, though you may experience a mild tingling sensation

How long do the treatments take?

With Limelight (IPL) we can now treat a whole face in just 30 minutes, whereas treatment takes 45 minutes with older technologies.

LED Therapy treatment can vary from 10-20 minutes.


How many treatments will I need?

In order to achieve the best results from IPL we recommend a course of six treatments.

On average we recommend a course of 8-16 LED Therapy sessions spaced a week apart. There is no limit on the number of treatments you can have so patients often fit it into their regular skin care regime to keep up with the results.

How soon will I see the results?

You should see an improvement after the first session of IPL treatment with the end results clearly visible after your last treatment.

The results from LED Phototherapy are often seen instantly. Your skin will appear more hydrated and plump with blemishes and redness reduced.

How long will the results last?

In most cases the results will be long lasting after IPL treatment. However we recommend that you limit your exposure to the sun and use a high factor sun block when you are out in sunny weather to prevent further damage.

Your skin will continue to approve once the LED Therapy treatment or your course of treatments are over.

Are there any side effects?

The treated area may be a little red immediately after the IPL procedure, but this is normal and will not last long at all.

LED Phototherapy is one of the safest way to treat all skin types. It does not use heat, chemicals and the light does not contain harmful UV wavelengths.
